It’s Time to Let the GOP Die

After watching the results of the recent special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, I came to a sobering conclusion: the Republican Party, as an institution, needs to die. I’ve listened to all of the spin: Conor Lamb ran as a Trump-friendly Democrat. The Democrats had a registration advantage. Rep. Tim Murphy had

Biggest Loser in Pennsylvania? Polling

That Conor Lamb squeaked out the narrowest of victories in a pre-midterm election is hardly surprising. Although Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton there by 20 points, the Western Pennsylvania district nevertheless has a Democratic registration advantage of 46 percent to 41 percent and is “ancestrally Democratic.” Midterm elections nearly always go against the

Trump is Reviving American Republicanism

Late on election night, as befuddled pundits finally accepted that Trump, against all predictions, had been elected president, the question arose: “What then should this new Trump party be called?”  Came the puzzled response: “I don’t know you tell me.” Whereas others entered office prepared merely to give lip service to their campaign promises,

Russia is Destabilizing America with Democrats’ Help

Colonel Stanislav Lunev defected from Russia to America in 1992. He came with a warning: Never mind the end of the Cold War. Russia was increasing its subversive activities against America. Unfortunately, the authorities ignored his warnings. Lunev’s articles have been wiped from the Internet. His book is out of print. Lunev has only

Donald Trump on Love and Justice

One of the most revealing moments of Donald Trump’s presidency so far went completely unnoted. “We all learned a lot,” he said following his recent discussion with the nation’s governors, which centered on his well-publicized support for arming qualified public teachers and staff. Speaking of the sheriffs who held back from entering Marjory

Trump Enforces Immigration Law

Americans could view immigration policy three ways: Through the lens of a citizen, a client, or a consumer. First, there is the small r-republican view of immigration through the lens of citizenship. Second, there is the progressive view of immigration which passes through the lens of identity politics. What matters is not an

Schiff Losing the Memo Wars

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) launched the third salvo in the “Great Memo Wars” over the weekend, and after overshooting his target, it’s apparent that the Democrats either didn’t know what they were doing when they released their rebuttal memo on so-called "Russian collusion," or they were again seeking to create confusion or

Equal Justice Under Law: ‘Well, We’re Waiting’

Atop the entrance to the United States Supreme Court is engraved a solemn promise for every American to see: “Equal Justice Under Law.” Unconscionably, it is a promise that historically was broken with respect to many Americans, whose unjust treatment is rightly recorded and recounted as a reminder that, where the rights of

When Seconds Count, Police Under No Legal Obligation To Act

As with many hot-button issues, Americans are sharply divided over Second Amendment rights. Liberals argue that only trained police officers should be armed and citizens should rely on them for protection. Observers from the Right counter that a trained “good guy with a gun” could limit the number of casualties in the critical
